Planting Party 2014

Just a few photos from the 4th annual County Rail Planting Party!

A Letter From Margaret

Dear Friends, The kale is in the ground!  Somehow I feel as if transplanting outside should be in national headlines.  Newsflash:  Food, Now Safe to Grow Outside! Well maybe there are more important things happening in the world, but I…

Suddenly, Spring

Two weeks ago, after months of snow on the ground, it seemed completely absurd to start seeds. Now that the ground is bare and the days are filled with sunshine, however, I feel like everything is happening at once. The…

Harvest Party Pics

FINALLY some pictures for y’all. I was having too much fun chatting and throwing tomatoes that I didn’t take as many as I’d have liked to. But this is better than nothing, right? Coda got us in the mood for…

Planting Party!

Sunday we had 15 people (that’s including two sets of children!) out to the farm for a work day. It was sunny, warm, and summery… if it weren’t for the gusts of wind every 20 minutes the weather would have…

Arugula season 2021 kicks off today! See you in 4-5 weeks little guys. Swipe for reverse process: seeding, raking big chunks of tomato and straw, pulling dandies (wow that sounds dirty... it was), and one of many cross sections of soil showing roots worms and the unseen billions of critters that make all our stuff grow and grow strong. #organic #homegrown #montana #arugulaseason
It is so exciting and encouraging to see green things growing out of the ground right now rather than just on the seedling bench. Tulips are comin, folks! @fieldfiveflowers
This morning’s snow-brows were too good to not share
Remember that live journal called Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things? It’s probably a tiktok trend or something now but that’s how I feel about seeding - esp this soaked ranunculus. Tuck em in, sing some Brittany Spears, and do a little dance in the greenhouse kinda day
Round #2 of grafted tomatoes! Someone asked for videos of grafting last time but I failed at posting them, which is probably good because I proceeded to kill them through sheer winter neglect 🤦🏻‍♀️. Let’s hope these little ones have a better survival rate (ie I don’t completely forget about them while they’re acclimating). #organic #tomatoes #greenhouseseason #montanahomegrown
Beginnings with @fieldfiveflowers as we fire up the greenhouse and remember all the back/neck muscles we forgot about this winter. And a portrait of my favorite seeding table broom, handmade from @foxfiregoods - she’s solid and a must have bench mate. Thanks, Grace - maybe we’ll actually grow some broomcorn this year !
